Just Love a Good Crop Day

Yesterday was Crop Day. 

I so look forward to Crop Day as, although I'm very lucky that I can more or less do some every day at home, I enjoy spending my time with some lovely people who have the same interests.

I even managed to cut down on my usually massive stash that I take along thanks to my February Counterfeit Kit. OK so I know there's a lot there but you should see what I usually take.

I managed 4 pages yesterday (one of which I will keep for a later date) including my entry for the Purple Pumpkin February Sketch Challenge which I will show you first.



My daughter was so scared of the fact there maybe little creatures in the grass that her feet hardly touched the ground. Even when she stopped to wait for us to catch up she was running on the spot!!!

The next two, still using my kit, are just my own without following any sketches/challanges (which I haven't done for a while now)


The layout above depicts the standing joke on our holiday last year where nearly everyday we would eat our cereal out of square plastic bowls and make cheese rolls in the morning to have a picnic along the way. DD hates it when the cheese gets a bit warm. Following the west coast of America we were lucky to see some of the biggest Redwoods in the world but by the time we'd seen one or two, DD just rolled her eyeballs every time we said we would be seeing more!!!


I love our family holidays and (mostly) enjoy every minute of them. I try to get lots of photos of us as a family and I love this one taken on one of the many beaches as we travelled down the coast.

  4. Smashing pages - I love the photo of I running away - so funny. It's also great that you have captured so many shots of the three of you in such creative ways/beautiful settings ... not just handing a camera over to a passer-by for an awkward cheesy grin shot.
